New Space

Since we're moving to an island, we chose to sell or give away most of our furniture and some home decor items.  Basically, we're starting over.

So I've been looking at specific decorating styles and scouring craigslist for things available over in Hawaii.  Erik likes a clean, modern style but I like what is often termed "shabby chic" so we're trying to find a little common ground with our new place.


Pinterest has been a great inspiration.  I know practically everyone else has talked about how much they love the site, but I'm going to put my own plug in about it.  Because it's great.  Go take a look if you haven't yet.

Happy Monday!

Heading to paradise

So, as usual, it's been a while.  As usual, things have been busy.

Not usual--my husband was offered (and accepted) a job in Hawaii.

Packing and figuring out how we're going to make this move has been what has consumed us for the past three weeks.  I'm now completely unemployed and this upcoming weekend we'll start visiting family before we fly over.

Never did I envision myself in a tropical paradise, but I hope I'll get used to it.  I seem to be a nomad.  I haven't lived more than three years in any one place since I was 15 years old.  So I'm thankful for the opportunity to again live in a different place, to gain a little more experience in another area of the world.

But oh my goodness.

We're moving to Hawaii.
